To incorporate weights into your fitness regime is the first and most successful method of body fat reduction. A misconception is that cardiovascular training is the most successful way to lose body fat. As we tone our body composition, we raise our metabolism due to the fact that muscle burns calories. The leaner our body, the more calories we burn, in turn reducing body fat. Rather than an instant calorie burn through running on the treadmill, raise your metabolism for a sustained longer lasting calorie burn. Both cardiovascular and weight training methods have their own individual benefits and bring great results. Neither method should be ignored. Combine cardiovascular and weight training for longer lasting results through a ratio determined by your specific goals and capabilities. We will determine the chosen outcome and get the results through choosing the correct methods to achieve them. Don’t worry ladies, you won’t bulk up!
